Midway Metals are Australia’s largest independent stainless steel stockist, with branches throughout Australia, New Zealand and Vietnam.
Mariart were approached by Midway Metals to conduct a refresh of their logo, which was outdated and didn’t reflect their position as leaders in their industry. Taking inspiration from their existing colour palette, Mariart created a fresh, modern identity, which has since formed the foundation for a complete revamp of their corporate style.
In addition to the new Midway Metals logo, we have also designed artwork for new corporate stationery, product catalogue, brochures, print advertising, event invitations, pull up banners and product photography as well as the design and development of a new website.
Performax International are Australia’s largest importer of American high performance luxury vehicles and right hand steering conversion specialists.
Formally Corvette Queensland, our client realised their name and brand identity no longer represented their product offering. Not only did they sell and convert many brands other than Corvette, they also sold their product internationally.
In response, Mariart established a brand strategy, which incorporated a new name and positioning statement, more relevant to the current business offering. From brand strategy workshops, creative brainstorming and much research, Performax International was born. To launch the new name and identity, Mariart also redesigned all marketing collateral, which established new key messages and a new visual style.
Performax has experienced exponential growth since the launch of their new identity at the 2007 Brisbane Motor Show.
Modinex provides easy to install internal and external surface covering solutions for home and commercial spaces.
Before Modinex had a name, they had a vision of where they wanted to be and how they wanted to be perceived. Mariart were approached to name their business and develop a brand and marketing strategy that achieved this vision.
The result is Modinex; a name derived from their “modern” product offering, efficient installation and diverse range of products that cater to both “interior” and “exterior” surface needs. As part of the branding process, we also created a logo and positioning statement.
Further work for Modinex has included stationery design, website design and development, product brochures, posters, product sample packaging, banners and print management, as well as the design of logos for their Expresswood and Passport Decking product ranges.
Genesis Christian College
Genesis Christian College is an independent, non-denominational, co-educational school, based in Brisbane and catering for students from Prep to Year 12. The college campus also encompasses Little Genesis Early Learning Centre.
Mariart were originally approached by Genesis Christian College to design a new logo. We created an identity which celebrated the College’s culture of faith and learning. The logo was embraced with open arms by the board and wider community. This set the foundations for our ongoing partnership, through which we have created extensive marketing collateral for the College.
We also had the delightful task of designing a logo and various marketing pieces for Little Genesis Early Learning Centre. This particular brief was a joy to work on, thanks to the delightful subject matter. The Little Genesis logo was also well received within the Genesis community.
Maxxis Tyres is a global tyre brand distributed throughout Australia, by Tyremax.
Tyremax approached Mariart with two main objectives – to raise brand awareness and increase market share. A branding workshop with key decision makers from Tyremax led to the establishment of a ‘brand wheel’, which enabled us to create a brand personality, positioning statement and advertising campaign, relevant to the Australian market.
We have been working closely with Tyremax for a number of years, involved in all facets of their marketing strategy and developing integrated, relevant advertising campaigns to continue to build the Maxxis brand in Australia.
Services provided to Tyremax include, design of all printed material, product catalogues, price lists and press advertising campaigns as well as website design, development and maintenance.
Stroud Homes is a newly established, high qualtiy project home, building company, servicing South East Queensland.
James Stroud approached Mariart to establish a brand strategy and marketing plan for his new business, as well as create a full suite of marketing material. James had a very tight time frame to work within, however we were able to meet his launch date with a suite of strategic, creative and ‘on brand’ collateral, that has enabled Stroud Homes to effectively display their point of difference and quickly gain market share.
Our work for Stroud Homes has so far included the development of their logo, positioning statement, printed collateral, advertising templates, window displays, signage and website design.
